No sign of the weather affecting any plans you might have for the weekend.

“Mainly dry” is the term used most often in the Met Éireann weather forecast ahead of a weekend that won’t be spectacular by any means, but will be largely free of miserable conditions that could put a dampener on the next few days.

Friday will be mainly dry and cloudy in most areas, with highest temperatures ranging between 12 and 17 degrees.

The south of the country will enjoy the best of the weather today, with plenty of sunny spells in Munster during the day before patchy rain moving southwards from Ulster makes its presence felt later in the evening.

Again, Saturday is promised mainly dry and cloudy for the most part with only a small threat of scattered showers; temperatures will reach no higher than 15 degrees with the south of the country again benefitting from the most pleasant conditions.


In what will be a trend for the following few days, meanwhile, Saturday night will turn very cool, with temperatures dropping to as low as 0 degrees in Ulster and the possibility of frost in places.

Sunday is pretty much a carbon copy of Friday and Saturday during the day – mainly dry, some light showers, highest temperatures of 12-15 degrees – before the return of more unsettled conditions and wintry showers at the start of next week leading into the Bank Holiday weekend.
